  • LIGO Facility Tour

    The ASME CBS would like to invite you and friends to a LIGO Tour on
    Saturday September 9th at 3:00 pm.  The Laser Interferometer
    Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO)is a national facility for
    gravitational-wave research, providing opportunities for the broader
    scientific community to participate in detector development, observation,
    and data analysis. LIGO consists of two widely separated interferometers
    within the United States—one in Hanford, Washington and the other in
    Livingston, Louisiana—operated in unison to detect gravitational waves.

    Please plan on being there at 2:45.  The tour will begin with a
    presentation at 3:00, and then will commence with a 1-hour walking tour of
    the facility and its many interactive and static exhibits. Hope to see you

    LIGO Hanford Observatory, 127124 N Route 10, Richland, WA 99354
